Virtus wand detail.png

The Virtus wand is a magic weapon that is part of the Virtus equipment set. Wielding it requires level 80 Magic. It is dropped exclusively by Nex in the God Wars Dungeon. Wielding the wand makes all minions bar Zarosians in the God Wars Dungeon passive.

It degrades after 60,000 charges of combat (but loses 2 charges per hit, so has a minimum duration of 5 hours of combat) but can be repaired at Bob in Lumbridge, or at an armour stand.

When received with CoinShare active, the Virtus wand will be dropped as 120 Virtus wand shards split evenly among the players and sent directly to their banks. 120 shards can be combined to create this item.

Combat stats[edit | edit source]

Repair cost[edit | edit source]

This item costs at most 2,000,000 coins to repair completely. The repair cost is precisely calculated by the degradation percentage (i.e. with 75% charge remaining, a full repair would only cost 500,000 coins). It may be repaired through a variety of methods.

NPCs[edit source]

These methods cost more as they do not consider player's Smithing level for a repair discount.

Improved methods[edit source]

These methods provide a repair cost discount of 0.5% per Smithing level (including boosts).
